Recent Charleston reviews

  • Charming cottage in excellent location.

    "We spent a week in this lovely carriage house and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been completely renovated, but still retains its old fashioned charm. Our hosts were perfect - available when we had a question, but never intrusive. The gardens are beautifully kept and you can walk from this cottage to several really interesting shops and restaurants. We followed Lisa's restaurant recommendations and were rarely disappointed. There is private parking behind a gate which is rare to find in Charleston. We're already planning our next visit!"

  • Fabulous Intimate Wedding Location

    "We held our daughter's wedding at Toogoodoo Bluff at the end of September 2014. We had a fabulous time. She wanted a wedding with low country feel but not necessarily a "huge" plantation. She also wanted to be able to spend the entire weekend at her venue with the wedding party relaxing, spending the time with friends and family and making memories to last a lifetime. She wanted a place steeped in history, beauty and serenity. We found everything we desired when we found Toogoodoo Bluff. The wedding of her dreams took place and we can't say enough about how beautiful and serene everything was. God truly blessed us with a beautiful day. I am so thankful to Keith, the owner, and for finding such an exquisite place for my daughter to fulfill the wedding of her dreams. I hope to come back some day and have a family reunion here. Thanks again Keith and Toogoodoo Bluff. Amber F."

  • First class!

    "Accommodations were above expectations. The architectural details of the interior of the second floor carriage house were impeccably preserved and well combined with nicely appointed high-end amenities. Spotlessly clean and the king mattress was ultra-plush. We toured the city on foot and felt the location was perfect. Noise was minimal considering the additional units in the attached house. The owner responsed promptly to all communications. I would highly recommend staying here when visiting Charleston!"

  • Perfect!

    "We rented this lovely home for 5 days preceding my daughter's May wedding in downtown Charleston. The light-filled house was clean, spacious, well appointed, and conveniently located to everything we wanted to do! We loved being in the historic district, walking the battery and the easy access to restaurants and other sites.The owner was super nice and made it clear she was available if we needed anything or had any problems! We loved being in Charleston in May - the weather was perfect and although we were in town in the midst of Spoleto - traffic and crowds were never a problem from this location.We highly recomend this property for travelers wanting a spacious and comfortable home-stay experience."
